I’m such a knucklehead. My mind is all over the place lately and I forgot my 1 year blogging anniversary! It was on April 6th (last Wednesday) and it just completely slipped my mind.
Besides that nonsense, I had a pretty special day on Friday as well. But first, I had to fuel myself for the exciting evening ahead. First, oats for breakfast (a classic) and then re-introducing salads for lunch! Yay for warmer weather :) I even made homemade croutons but just toasting a piece of Ezekiel bread and tearing it into pieces. So good.
That afternoon, I went back to WPI to visit my Alpha Xi Delta sisters and give them a little nutrition talk! I mainly talked about brain-boosting foods and stress-busting foods per someone’s advice. It seemed appropriate for the given population anyway. It was so nice to see some of the girls again, especially my little! And I even met my grandlittle and great-grandlittle. Yes I’ve been negligent and hadn’t been back to visit them. But we went out to eat for a family dinner later and it was so much fun. I was stupid and didn’t grab a picture but I will have to make another visit to make sure I get one!
For dinner, we went to 1 of the most visited restaurants by WPI’ers. A place I’ve greatly missed. Yes – The Sole Proprietor. Or just “the sole” as we call us. Seafood restaurant extraordinaire. I of course ordered some sushi since I hadn’t eaten it in ages. Say goodbye to the Rainbow Maki because I INHALED it.
My little (Colleen) and I also did a quick wine tasting at The Wine Vine across the street while we waited for our table. The owners are the nicest people I swear! The guy remembered me from 2.5 years ago when I made a birthday basket for my big! I was amazed.
But now of course it’s Monday and back to work. Well school. But you know what I mean. I mostly worked from home so I didn’t have to lug a bunch of food onto campus which was nice. I don’t buy food there usually unless it’s the occasional Chobani or Larabar from the cafe. I’m proud to say I’ve never eaten from Simmons cafeteria.
I screwed myself up by not eating breakfast right away but instead waiting a couple hours and had a late brunch. Spinach, Mushroom & Mozzarella Omelet, toast, and berries. And coffee of course.
Dinner was happy and sad at the same time. Happy because I made a yummy salmon recipe but sad because we had run out of vegetables. I suppose somebody should have run to the store but we didn’t. So I was stuck with just honey-soy salmon, brown rice & beans. Like I said, happy and sad.
Oh and guess who took advantage of the extremely gorgeous weather we had today? This girl did! I got my butt out for a quick run after dinner but before it got dark. I was able to get in 30 minutes and almost 3 miles. Surprisingly I felt really good too, no injuries to report! Woohoo!
Now it’s past my bedtime, Goodnight!
What did you do on this fine day?
